This company was organized at Macon, Mississippi on April

From thence the regiment of which this company constituted
a portion, was ordered to repair to Harper's Ferry, West Vir

line of march on June 21 for Winchester, Virginia, at which place
it remained four weeks, when orders were received to repair to
Manassas to participate in the great battle which came off on July
On arriving at Piedmont Station on the Manassas Gap Rail-
road, transportation being limited, only two companies of the
regiment (this one and Company A) arrived at Manassas in time
for the fight. The battle being over this company rejoined the
regiment on the night of July 21 and marched and proceeded the
next day to camp at Bull Run and near the battlefield of July 21.
Our stay at that proved to be only for a few days. Removing our
camp south four miles below Manassas on the Orange and
Alexandria Railroad, where we remained until September 17,
when we moved to Camp Fisher near Dumfries, Virginia and
constructed huts for winter quarters.
The company has participated in every battle of importance
fought by the Army of Northern Virginia, except the first an
second battles of Fredericksburg, as will be seen by reference to
the record. The company has had over 150 men on its roll but
battles and disease have reduced us down to about forty-five for
duty, only one-third of whom are now present. Owing to time
being limited only a brief sketch of this company can be given at
present but it is to be hoped that at some future day we will be
able to present the state of Mississippi with a more complete
record of the part taken by the troops which she has furnished to
the Army of Northern Virginia.
